K Street Bounces Back
K Street is seeing a bump in revenue after a brutal 2013 for many of the top lobbying firms in Washington, D.C.
Public Policy and Regulation Practice Group Leader Rich Gold said this year Holland & Knight will focus on legislative "nuts and bolts" such as the renewal of the Export-Import Bank, terrorism risk insurance and transportation funding. Holland & Knight saw an increase in lobbying fees in 2013 and lobbying revenues for the first quarter of 2014 were favorable as well with a jump of nearly 10 percent, from $4.4 million to $4.8 million.
“Things feel like they're picking up and it feels like we're more able to legislate. If you look at the last decade, we do most of the legislating during lame-duck sessions,” Mr. Gold said.
